As a 501(c)(3) organization, IMT is proud to work alongside a range of public, private, and non-profit partners to transform the way buildings are designed, constructed, and managed to create a low-carbon future for all.

Their financial support and collaboration make possible our research, programs, and advocacy efforts, as well as the implementation of solutions that drive deeper investment in better buildings. For more information on how you might get involved with IMT, contact us at

Buildings aren’t just walls and equipment—they’re our homes and workplaces. They’re where we raise our families and where we send our children to learn and grow. They house our communities, providing space for us to connect with one another. Now, more than ever, we need them to help bring out the best in our communities.
